"Interior demolition is a good example where these machines excel, as the machine is small enough to access the inside of a building, yet powerful enough to use a hydraulic breaker attachment to demolish concrete and then switch to a grapple to remove the debris," says Rostberg. "Accessing in-between houses built closely together or through backyard gates and fences is another prime example of the usefulness of this size machine."
Rated operating capacity for the 272D is 3,200 lbs., and for the 299D it is 2,975 lbs. at 35 percent of tipping load. Capacity for the 299D rated at 50 percent of tipping load is 4,250 lbs. An optional counterweight kit increases rated operating capacity of these machines to 3,450 lbs. and 4,500 lbs., respectively. Operating weights are 8,404 lbs. and 10,866 lbs., respectively.
Backhoes: For superior digging and excavation with your skid steer, nothing beats a backhoe. These attachments are controlled from inside the cab, designed and engineered to allow digging and shifting from the operator’s seat. Certain new skid steer models can come equipped with optional auxiliary hydraulic backhoe lines for attaching further hammers, augers, thumbs and other accessories for maximum digging utility.
Warren CAT is proud to offer a huge selection of Cat skid steers throughout the Oklahoma and Texas Territory for a wide variety of construction and industrial applications. Skid Steers deliver exceptional performance, versatility, ease of operation, serviceability, and come with unmatched Caterpillar customer support. If you need a machine that packs a powerful punch, the 272D XHP features the turbocharged Cat C3.8 engine with a gross power rating of 110 hp. The sealed and pressurized cab keeps dust and debris out while offering a wide-open, roomy configuration for maximum comfort and ease of operation. The speed-sensitive ride control system of any skid steer provides the smoothest possible ride on even the most rugged terrain, which also gives the operator greater load control.

Skid steer loaders, the "Swiss Army Knives" of machines, use a wide range of mechanical and hydraulically powered attachments to accomplish varied tasks. Skid loaders, having sophisticated auxiliary hydraulic systems, are compact, highly maneuverable, and range in rated operating capacity (the weight that can be safely lifted and transported) from 500 to more than 4,000 pounds.
One size does not fit all when it comes to skid steers. Bigger is not universally better, while smaller units come with their own limitations and maintenance details a savvy purchaser shouldn't overlook. It's important to consult skid-steer size charts to take into account three major variables: A unit's engine model, its horsepower and its rated operating capacity (ROC).

Some models of skid steer now also have an automatic attachment changer mechanism. This allows a driver to change between a variety of terrain handling, shaping, and leveling tools without having to leave the machine, by using a hydraulic control mechanism to latch onto the attachments. Hydraulic supply lines to powered attachments may be routed so that the couplings are located near the cab, and the driver does not need to leave the machine to connect or disconnect those supply lines.
